Bouchon Pais Viejo 2018
A light, fresh red wine in a very crowd-pleasing style.
Bright wildflowers, rosehips, cherries and wild strawberries, very fresh and juicy style - a great alternative to Beaujolais.
The Bouchon story began in 1892 when Emile Bouchon settled in the Colchagua Valley in Chile from his native Saint Emilion in Bordeaux. Today, the vineyards are located in the Maule Valley and Julio Bouchon Senior and his children continue this long tradition of winemaking. País Viejo is made from vines which are over 100 years old, planted in the dry coastal region of Chile’s Maule Valley. It is a rustic hearty variety that grows on head-trained vines with no trellising. The wine is fermented in concrete tanks using native yeasts.
